Episode 46: The Season of Lent

  • 00:00 – Introduction
  • 01:44 – Scripture Narrative (Mark 9:2-8)
  • 15:27 – Free-for-All (Winter Olympics)
  • 31:02 – Main Topic (The Season of Lent)

On episode FORTY-SIX of Let the Bird Fly! Wade, Mike, and Peter sit down to discuss the season of Lent. Mike kicks off the episode by saying “Farewell to Alleluia” and Wade walks us through Mark’s account of the Transfiguration, before we all share our insightful thoughts on the Winter Olympics. Eventually we find our way to the main topic, where we discuss some of what makes the season of Lent stand out to each of us.

A couple of books that are mentioned in the episode are Catherine Pickstock’s After Writing: On the Liturgical Consummation of Philosophy and Oliver Burkeman’s The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking. You may need to listen to the episode to see how they relate to our topic (the discussion meandered a bit, as is our want), but trust us, they do.
